Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach:
Policy priority:
Evidence philosophy:


Rounds judged: 19
Approach: Equal
I evaluate a Lincoln Douglas Debate Primarily through case level offence of each side that links into the Value Criterion of Whichever Side wont the Framework Debate. I will only consider critical arguments if they are very well warranted. I refuse to vote in favor of a Debater that speaks at an incomprehensively rapid pace. During the Rebuttals I really like to see debater weigh individual pieces of offence.
